Douglas A Kremer, age 63 of Beavercreek, passed away Friday, September 1, 2017. He is preceded in death by his father, Walter Kremer. He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Ann Kremer, and two children: Steve Shaw of Bellbrook and Theresa Shaw and husband Mike Gomez of Austin, Texas. He adored his five grandchildren: Cameron Berry, Joshua Berry, Chloe Shaw, Kai Gomez and Laila Gomez. He is also survived by his mother, Rita Kremer of Beavercreek, and was the youngest of a large family of brothers and sisters: Dale Kremer of Beavercreek, Russell and wife Vicki Kremer of Nevada, Gary and wife Judy Kremer of Dayton, Judy and husband Doug Thompkins of North Carolina, and Debbie Kremer and David Finke of South Carolina, and had numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Doug was the owner of K&G Bike Center, starting the business in 1974 in Kettering, and expanding it to include locations in Centerville and Xenia. He regarded his K&G team as part of his family, and countless customers and suppliers as friends over the years. Doug's favorite place to go was Norris Lake, whether relaxing and boating with family and friends, or treasuring the serenity of it alone with his wife. He had a strong passion for sports, was an avid Flyers and Buckeyes fan, and forever a Browns fan. Doug was a fierce yet fun competitor, and loved to win when playing cards, board games, trivia, and fantasy sports. He relaxed alone doing mental challenges like Sudoku, puzzles, and brain teasers. Always by his side was his loyal dog, most recently his beloved Beagle/Lab mix named Soda Pop. Friends may come to the Tobias Funeral Home Beavercreek Chapel, 3970 Dayton-Xenia Rd.
